Fire Corps offers free online training through the Fire Corps Academy. A series of webinars are scheduled this winter on a variety of topics, including starting and implementing a local program, recruiting members, funding and support, and activity-specific courses like disaster preparedness, and public education.
Fire Corps is a national program that connects community members to their local fire/EMS department to perform non-emergency tasks, increasing the department’s capacity and allowing first responders to focus on operations. The Fire Corps Academy webinars are designed to help departments, Fire Corps program managers, and citizen volunteers to start, expand, and recruit for a local program.
